Rex Burkhead works out for Raiders Tuesday
Rex Burkhead worked out for the Raiders on Tuesday, per Field Yates. The veteran back has familiarity with Josh McDaniels from his time in New England.
Burkhead spent the last two years as a Houston Texan and primarily found himself in a third-down back role. Burkhead excels in pass protection and could be a valuable asset next to Jimmy G, who is not the most mobile QB. While a Burkhead signing may be beneficial for the Raiders' offense as a whole, the player himself is not a fantasy-viable player heading into 2023.
